TV Tonight: "Creature Comforts"

TV Tonight: "Creature Comforts"

It's finally time! My new favorite thing, the CBS animated series "Creature Comforts," starts tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern and Pacific.

Here's the deal: The Aardman Animations team (known for "Wallace and Gromit" and Chicken Run) went around the country, interviewing ordinary people on subjects ranging from art to love to health care. Then, they turned those people into adorable animals (caged lovebirds, horses in a stable, a fish in a bowl) and told their stories through the studio's trademark stop-motion animation.

I'm really not sure if this show will catch on (in fact, I'm already gearing up to mourn its premature cancellation, just in case). My biggest fear is that people will hear the word "animated" and assume they're getting cartoons, not social anthropology. True, "Creature Comforts" isn't necessarily laugh-out-loud funny, but it is charming, delightful, and definitely worth a shot. To watch a couple of preview clips,
